The Salvation Army was originally named "The Volunteer Army". That still holds true today. To be effective in our mission we need your talents, time and help to benefit others. Will you volunteer? You will find that there are unseen benefits for you, too. We have year-round and seasonal opportunities. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact our office at 970-207-4472
The Salvation Army offers volunteer opportunities throughout the year in our Administration offices, Corps Community Centers, and our Youth and Senior Programs.
The Salvation Army has a variety of opportunities open during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season. The following list is just an example of some the positions available during the holidays:
Red Kettle Bell Ringers
Ring for 3 or 4 hour shifts at locations near you. The money stays in the community where you ring and will be used to run the programs offered in that community. It runs November 23 through December 24, six days a week, 8:00am – 8:00pm. This is a simple way to raise money and awareness for outreach in your own community.
Help register families to receive Christmas assistance, or help with data entry, answering phones, and filing. Bilingual volunteers are needed (Spanish and Russian).
League of Mercy
Deliver gifts, toys and food to hospitals, nursing homes, shut-ins and prisoners. (We would like as many people to volunteer because the number of sites visited is determined by volunteer participation).
Adopt a Family
Volunteers will organize, pack and distribute gifts to families the week of December 14 through December 18 (daily except Sunday), from 9:00am until 4:00pm. Shifts are available. Additionally, we need volunteers to come in daily to help with general office work.
There are many other opportunities available during the Season and year-round.
Court Appointed Community Service Opportunities?
The Salvation Army does accept court-ordered volunteers.
